Published in the Mar.4, 2009, issue

Bob Culbertson’s unexpected death, from an apparent heart attack, occurred April 8, 2008.

A graduate of Edina (Minn.) High School, Bob joined the freshman football team at Princeton. Bob left Princeton after sophomore year, was married in 1967, and graduated from the University of Minnesota with a major in European history. He served in the Army at Fort Ord in California and lived in that state for many years. He went into the transmission business as owner of C&S Transmission Inc. in San Leandro.

Bob loved swimming, hiking, boating, skiing, and camping. He shared these interests, as well as a love for model trains, with his brothers.

Predeceased by his brother Frank Jr., Bob is survived by his parents, Pearl and Frank Culbertson, and his brother Jim. His funeral took place in Red Lodge, Mont., where he is buried next to his brother. The class extends its sincere sympathy to all of Bob’s family.
